European Toxicology Societies EUROTOX

EUROTOX is the Federation of national societies of toxicology in Europe, which together have approximately 7,000 members. In addition, EUROTOX counts more than 200 individual members United Nations agency comes from 50 countries, mostly from Western Europe. Historically, EUROTOX has its roots in the European Society for the Study of Drug Toxicity, which was founded in 1962 in Zürich. The first annual scientific meeting was held in 1963 in Paris, at which occasion also the Statutes of the new society were adopted. As the Society's interests started to extend into toxicology areas other than drug toxicology, it was set to change the name into European Society of toxicology (EST). This was done at the scientific meeting in 1974 in Carlsbad. In the late seventies and early eighties national toxicology societies grew rapidly, both in number and in membership. Thus 14 national societies of toxicology (Finland, France, the German Federal Republic, the German Democratic Republic, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom) and Eastern Time decided to found the Federation of European Societies of toxicology (FEST), which was done at the Eastern Time congress in Kuopio, 1985. As this presently clad to form needless duplications, Eastern Time modified its Statutes, adopted the name EUROTOX, and Eastern Time and FEST merged at the 5th IUTOX Congress in Brighton, 1989. in the years thereafter EUROTOX grew steadily, now encompassing also Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech republic, Denmark, Estonia, Greece, Latvia, Macedonia, Portugal, Romania, Russia, European nation, Slovenia, Turkey, Ukraine and Serbia. EUROTOX aims to foster toxicology, both scientifically and educationally, all told countries of Europe. To this, EUROTOX organizes an annual scientific congress, workshops, and postgraduate training courses. EUROTOX is actively harmonizing pharmacology education and training, having established the European Register of Toxicologists in 1994. Furthermore EUROTOX honors annually a distinguished European toxicologist by its merit Award.
